Secret of Scent

When Lesha Radyan asked me to come up with a promotional video for his new bussines – Jan Niche Concept, which sells exclusive brands of fragrants, primarily it was a question of accommodation. This is not a TV format in the classic sense. The video will be shown on screens in shopping centers, gyms, supermarkets and even in the front of luxury homes. The audience is people who do not stay in front of screen, they just go somewhere for their bussines. And hold them, we can only by bright picture and history. History with a secret. Let torment with his dissatisfaction, the desire to think, to think out and look again.

That is why I and Karen Beybutyan decided to create several stories. They were all different and we would choose, which can be seen on the screen.
